Bayonetta Creator Not Thrilled With Erotic Bayonetta Send-Ups

Bayonetta is one sexy game. The main character, Bayonetta, is encased in a full-body suit made of human hair and structs around in high heels outfitted with pistols. See? That's hot. And is fertile ground for porn parody fan art.

However, Bayonetta designer Hideki Kamiya doesn't exactly seem too happy with that sort of thing, writing, "It seems there is an erotic doujinshi of Bayonetta...There are fans that find that sort of thing unpleasant, and I don't think it can't possibly show any sort of love for the game."

Unpleasant or not, doujinshi (think fan fiction) come with the territory and are often a good gauge of a game or character's popularity.

    Anything with bewbs is a target of "erotic doujinshi"

    Every single Female from any video game will have no less than 5 dedicated websites to henti fan art. Bayonetta got off easy considering the material people had to work with. Just look how bad it got with FF7 female characters and that game didn’t constantly shove boobs in your face.

    She's gorgeous. So what's the problem?

    I love the game I really do, but seriously if he didn't see this coming then he's an idiot. She has to be one of the most sexualised game characters of recent memory.

    I mean hell, even characters like Freya from FF9 get erotic comics about them.

    Talk about attempting to disown the (very predictable) consequences of your own actions! The entire marketing campaign for Bayonetta was based on pushing the erotic nature of its main character.

    It's creepy, yeah, but I'm not sure it's a bad thing. It's a compliment, in a way, and if it stops people looking at illegal porn, I'm all for it.

    Figuratively, I mean. It's not my cup of tea.

    Dood, theres Simpson's porn.

    You make a "sexy" charactor, what do you expect?

    Aloha, Yes- this wahine is very sensual, both the anime and 3-D poser styles of art are so expressive. Bayonetta's character reminds us of Mr. X's & Jessy Dee's Erotic poser characters, and gurochans erotic renderings; Ms. Americana, Batbabe, and Wonder Woman- and how they are portrayed. The Drama and Action of the combat are almost life-like, and the fantasy are mostly concluded with destructive defeats,is probably the main ingredient that has GamePlayers come back to her over and over again, (much like Nightshade/Kunoichi has a history of arousing interest with the "Players").
    The near porn expressions sure leaves her without clothing much of the time, very much like again Ms. Americana, Got Gal and NinjaBabe Kim Li, BatBabe ect....
    How many times does Bayonetta find her position defeated and destroyed and resurrected each time to fight Evil/Good (?!?) again- Does Bayonetta really get raped and die in some of her adventures?! After all she is a magical-powerfull Witch, at least Mr. X'and Jessy Dees main charcters have not died Yet!?!

    Is there to be a "Bayonetta" comic book series coming out soon? Will there be a future Live-Action-Movie created from the Bayonetta? we are wondering will they have Sarah Louise Palin playing the part of the maincharacter Bayonetta.

    ciao iruka-san.

    I'm sorry, but how is ANY erotic doujinshi about Bayonetta somehow bad? The game itself is basically soft-core porn! He made a GAME that is pretty much porn in and of itself, and he gets angry when people make porn of it? How can a guy be mad when people make porn of his porn? I mean, I'm not much of a porn person myself, but come on, when you make a game like this, you shouldn't be surprised and outraged when people make porn of it. Because let's be blunt, people didn't play Bayonetta because of the gameplay or story - they played it so they could see a sexy lady do lots of sexy stuff. The fan-made porn isn't really a surprise, and you'd have to be stupid to think that it wouldn't happen. Hell, if you could get porn of Digimon, then you're DEFINITELY going to get porn of Bayonetta.
